Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church is walking into a new day and a new future. The chance to be part of this kind of experience will be an opportunity to explore spiritual growth in new ways. It will call on people to be creative, to be expressive in their care for each other, and to discover how they can hear God in their own life. So, the church will offer classes where people can consider if God is calling them to be part of this community of faith, and its new adventures.
Joining a church is such a different thing, and because of that we hold classes so people can make a serious decision. At the same time, the church also decides on receiving a person who wants to join. The reason for this is simple. It’s a serious statement about one’s personal understanding of life and God’s part in that. The individual who wants to join and the church that wants to receive people both want to make sure that they’ve been transparent and assured in their discernment.
At the present, Rancho Bernardo Community Presbyterian Church is hosting three classes for people to consider joining this congregation on Sundays, October 3, 10 and 17, at 10:30am. This will be an opportunity for people who want to explore membership to consider becoming part of this congregation. On Sunday, October 17th, the members of the class will meet with Elders to share a personal statement of their desire to join and an expression of faith in God and Jesus Christ. This will not be a formal experience, but more like a conversation.
